The NDLSCA Award for the Best Stage 2 Accounting Student
When I first received the email informing me that I had won The NDLSCA Award for the Best Stage 2 Accounting Student, I was very surprised and couldn’t quite believe it. I have never won anything before, so this is such an honour.
I am so grateful to be acknowledged as one of the best students on my course. I had always been a very average student before I came to university, receiving average grades and only just achieved the grades to actually get into the University.
The University of Derby and the amazing lecturers really helped me blossom with their continuous support. If I ever had a problem regarding coursework, I was able to pop into their offices and receive the support that I needed, as they made time for me, even during their busy times. My future is brighter now because of my wonderful lecturers. I am expected to leave University with an amazing degree with a strong and stable career in front of me.
I am so glad that I made the decision to come to the University of Derby. It has been a massive stepping stone and given me the opportunities to prove that I can stand out from the crowd, which is so important in today’s job market.
